This is honestly one of the worst movies I have ever watched. The only good thing about it is the acting. Every other aspect of it is just completely awful. There's pretty much no scares at all, some of the characters decisions make absolutely no sense, they stop checking all of the footage before any of the real activity even starts, and the ending is just ridiculous. Only watch it if you want to be bored to death.

Paranormal 4 had a great strong ending - though waiting the whole movie to see it isn't as fun.

Compared to the other films, it left me with more questions then answers after it ended. While the suspense and surprises hold up well enough, it wasn't as satisfying mixed with the not-so-developed plotline. On the plus side, the continuing story in general was fairly interesting with the general threat being led to a family with no clue or intentions to demons and ghosts.

One of the best ones of the series

The movie's plot is incredibly repetitive from the previous ones, and it feels as if your watching the same movie except with an even more shallow story.

Paranormal Activity A+ Paranormal Activity 2 B+ Paranormal Activity 3 C+ Paranormal Activity 4 D -. I waited a whole year for this movie and I didn't even buy popcorn or expensive soda in a rush to catch this movie. Although there were a few scares here and there, overall I would have rather watched a rerun of the Walking Dead Season 1.

Forget flashing lights, covens, and people saying "may I help you" in the middle of the night. Nothing is as creepy, evil, and annoying as Robbie. That kid is pure evil. I've never hated a character in a movie so much, and that's exactly why Bradley Allen did the best job acting in this movie. Which leads me to say how the acting was pretty good. I also like the idea of using computers in this movie. The things I didn't like were how the characters make the worst possible decisions in the world! Instead of calling the cops on a perfectly usable phone, let's run to the possessed woman's house. The characters have No good reasoning. Another thing I don't like is how this movie stole the ending from the third movie. So overall this movie offers scares (their normally very predictable) and is entertaining so watch it if you have nothing to do.

Muito inferior aos anteriores, com cara de orçamento ainda menor - se é que é possível, e personagens muito sem graça. Só o final à la Bruxa de Blair meets zombies se salva.

I got up and did the dishes...not because I was asked too, I just did. But I'll give you a couple things. This is the worst of them all, nothing redeems it, not even the ending which not only isn't good, but it's really bad. The connection to the previous movies is so stupid that I would have preferred no connection at all. I don't think there's anything I liked.

If you're afraid of doors opening and closing on their own and things darting across the screen really fast, this movie will terrify you. If you're not, you'll spend half of this movie rolling your eyes, and the other half bored out of your skull.

They probably should have left it at 3.

The story is about what you'd expect and the scares are minor and rare.

Makes Blair Witch 2 into Citizens Cane for nno scares, no development in the series, and no interest from annyone who help make this garbage. At leasst the last 10 mins was scary.

It's closer than you think
This had the writers and the directors of the last film which was the only good entire in this entire series and yet this movie managed to suck eggs, alright here we go again.
Hello kiddies your pal the crypt-critic here and my god I don't know what to say about this piece of shriek. Because I freaking hate paranormal activity, I liked the last film as it was the only one with actual effort put into it but the others were complete crap. They consist of cameras videotaping retarded people that we don't care about as some invisible demon slams doors and moves bed sheets for two hours. If that's all you have going for you in your film then you have a lot of balls even calling it a film in the first place! The third at least had enjoyable characters,genuine scares,clever camera angles, and a way of integrating the demon that was not ingenious but also made sense. So yeah there's that one acceptable film but other that this series sucks!
We have a fourth film and despite having the team of the last film it manages to be horrendous not as tedious or boring as the first two but still just as stupid.
Paranormal Activity 4 follows a random family that had nothing to do with the other movies as the demon starts to stalk them. Why and how you ask, well I'm going try to explain this as simply as I can that crazy lady who took hunter at the end of part two is living on the street with a boy that isn't Hunter but for more then half the film were made to believe it's hunter until the boy for some reason dis sappers despite being the creepiest part of the film. When we learn this new retarded family adopted son is the real Hunter, which begs the question of how this possessed dummy lost Hunter in the first place and managed to end up with this family for some reason and now has to sacrifice a virgin which we can all tell is his adopted sister. It's pretty vague and you might not understand and the sister keeps recording everything on her laptop camera and when stuff starts happening going down in the house but her family doesn't believe her and yells at her a lot as she doesn't show them the footage on her laptop because she's a moron and she's got this boyfriend who's much more annoying then she is and he gets his necked snap by the possessed dummy who lives across the street during a bad camera angle and the movie ends with a demonic neighborhood army the possessed dummy eats the sisters face as the screen turns to black, leaving the entire audience unsatisfied.
There I just described the whole movie for you in the most coherent way I possibly could, this was one big load of ass! Unlike the first two films it has a thread of a plot but nothing goes anywhere I basically had to trade more bad for less bored, I was bored in many scenes but at least the sheer stupidity of this made me laugh occasionally. There were really only three good things in this movie that creepy kid whose name I can't pronounce, secondly the one sequence were the possessed dummy runs at the blonde bimbo that was pretty creepy and I thought the XBOX dots were kind of a nice concept they barely did anything with it but the idea was just cool. Everything else is just garbage, the acting sucks, the characters are freaking idiots and the scares are barley there. It's just one bad consist thing after another there is hardly a damn thing to enjoy here and what I did enjoy was incredibly minor. I heard that there the marked ones and five and soon maybe six, NO!No more of this stuff no more! This franchise learned from there mistakes in part three but now it is right back where it started with this one. Give it up I am sick of this franchise what baffles me is that this the one universally hated by critics where were you people when the first two films were released I don't get you.
The good thing is at least I saw this film for free on my Xbox.
Overall here's what I've been trying to tell you since part one of this franchise I can't tell you what to watch all the time cause I doubt you listen but the point is your being hornswaggled, your being bamboozeled, your being tricked into going to see something you've already seen before and your being ripped off! Now listen to me if I can just stop two of you from seeing this movie then I will feel like I've done my job but if I can't do that then I got two words for you, Screw you, screw you, screw you! I give this piece of shriek a one and a half out of five.
